The Neocatechumenal Way came to Jacmel in May and after a month of catechesis and convivence, the first community was called. Each week we gather to hear and share the Word of God.
On Sunday, July 21 we had our second convivence. We came to together to share Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours. The psalms were sung ( in French) a new challenge for Sr. Marilyn because she is now the cantor and guitar player, and the Word of God is listened to. After prayer we shared a meal where everyone brings something, kind of like a “pot luck” meal. After, we shared what this past month was like in our personal lives, especially as we have been walking the Way together. It was a blest day. We all look forward to next Thursday when we meet again to share the Word of God.
